The use of packaged software avoids the need for manual compilation and installation. But be aware that package versions often trail the current version by quite a number of releases. Consult the release information to see what you are missing!
Debian packages[edit | edit source]
$ sudo apt-get install glpk
If you only want GLPSOL, the following call is sufficient:
$ sudo apt-get install glpk-utils
In any case, confirm GLPSOL:
$ glpsol --version GLPSOL: GLPK LP/MIP Solver 4.38
Note that GLPK 4.44 was current at the time of the above installation — a lag of 6 releases.
RPM packages[edit | edit source]
$ sudo dnf install glpk-utils
Confirm GLPSOL, if you installed it:
$ glpsol --version GLPSOL: GLPK LP/MIP Solver, v4.43
RPM package maintenance for GLPK seems to be generally responsive.
